I love this turkey chili! I usually use cannellini beans in my chili, so I was really excited to try this black bean version. I added some hot sauce because I love really spicy chili, and it was perfect. I found the ancho chili powder at my local grocery store, I've never used it before until now and I am a new fan!

This turkey chili was really good. Not as spicy as I thought it would be, just the right amount of heat. I added a bunch of melty Monterrey jack cheese to my bowl, it was so delicious. Next time I make this I'll probably add tortilla chips. So good!
